September 22, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, will present a virtual Town Hall on Tuesday, 29 September at 10:00 EDT/15:00 BST/16:00 CEST, bringing together publishing leaders and education solutions providers to share their lesson plans for digital transformation in a COVID-19 world.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, schools across the US were closed suddenly and instruction shifted to a virtual model for millions of students. The spotlight fell on educational technology and licensing to address the new challenges as faculty and staff realized that success in this new model required access to content both in print and online formats.

The disruption caused by COVID-19 will have long-lasting repercussions beyond this school year. Learning will continue to be widely varied, with schools delivering a mix of in-person, remote and hybrid learning in order to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus while enhancing student outcomes and improving accessibility.

“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is widespread, but is especially crippling to the academic community,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President & Managing Director, CCC. “Schools are struggling with exactly how to begin the new academic year given conflicting pressure from scientists, government, community leaders, families, staff, unions, faculty and students. They need flexible, creative solutions that allow students, families and teachers to adapt to changing requirements with minimal interruption to the learning experience.”

Industry experts participating in the virtual Town Hall include:

• Karthik Krishnan, CEO, Britannica Group
• Beth Miller, Chief Knowledge Officer, EL Education, Inc.
• Paul Randall, Solutions Product Marketing Manager, HP
• Andrew Campana, Director, Business Development, CCC

CCC recently hosted virtual Town Halls on ‘Thinking Beyond the Crisis: Building Digital Resiliency’ and ‘Transformative Agreements: How Innovation is Answering the Open Access Challenge.’

Our We Not Me program is a way we collectively give back to our communities – and it continues every day in the personal choices we make.”

With a history of innovation and growth in a dynamic market, a passionate and dedicated team, and a deep commitment to building next-generation content and licensing solutions using the best technology and talent, CCC offers its employees a plethora of opportunities for growth and mission driven work, while providing very competitive benefits.

]]>
September 16, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces Open Access Workflow Services, a comprehensive consulting practice providing strategic Open Access (OA) and Transformative Agreement workflow support to publishers, funders, institutions and other key stakeholders in the scholarly communications ecosystem.

OA Workflow Services is a consulting offering in CCC’s suite of Content and Knowledge Management Solutions (CKMS). CKMS enables organizations to develop revenue opportunities, increase efficiencies, and positively impact reach, margin, and market share, where applicable. These solutions help organizations:

• Improve the management of data, content, and processes
• Develop workflows to deliver new business models, products, and services to their consumers
• Release the value they hold in their content and data

Through facilitated workshops, analysis of the organization’s current state, and recommendations for change management and operations, CCC’s consultants draw on first-hand experience in implementing OA agreements with more than 400 institutions through the RightsLink for Scientific Communications platform to provide insights into how to set up transformative agreements that are supportable and sustainable.

OA Workflow Services from CCC help publishers and their partners identify and implement strategies that:

• Accelerate progress across OA stakeholders: Through workshop facilitation among stakeholders including institutional and funding partners, CCC helps articulate current challenges and offers guidance and tools that lead to building strategic, scalable transformative agreement workflows that benefit all partners.

• Advance organizational objectives: With staff education on the shifting market landscape and rich insight into transformative agreement workflow, CCC gets customers
“unstuck” by conducting organizational audits and helping create prioritized action plans and roadmaps that support building and operationalizing workflows to manage transformation.

• Improve workflow design: CCC’s expertise from years of workflow design experience with top publishers and institutions helps develop sustainable, adaptable workflows through analysis of supporting systems, data gaps, agreement attributes, and more.

• Analyze and optimize metadata: Standardized, persistent metadata is a key component to successful, compliant transformative agreements. Through data compilation and analysis, customers see what is working well, where there are gaps, and how to fine-tune data to support business strategy.

• Understand next steps through reporting and business analysis: Through data reviews and analysis, CCC suggests ways to analyze agreement data and transform it into actionable business insights to support critical decision making.

“Funding communities, government agencies, and research institutions are mandating that more journal content is published open access and COVID-19 is amplifying that push,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President and Managing Director, CCC. “Working closely with innovative publishers, funders, and institutions to address market needs, our OA Workflow Services are well-positioned to help all stakeholders streamline the management of transformative agreements and accelerate business model evolution.”

CCC has developed deep expertise in creating market-driven solutions since the early days of OA. RightsLink is used by more than 30 leading publishers representing over 2,400 journals and supports thousands of authors.

A pioneer in licensing technology and innovation, CCC is a trusted intermediary and recognized market leader uniquely positioned to facilitate dialogue among key stakeholders in the author, publisher, institution, funding and vendor communities. The company encourages engagement across boundaries through an ongoing series of roundtables, panel events, webinars, podcasts and blogs. For example, last year, CCC and Outsell, Inc., the voice of the data, information and analytics economy, hosted an interactive, strategic discussion in London with senior industry executives on ‘The Future of Science’ and what it means for all stakeholders. CCC is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), the International Association of STM Publishers (STM), and a Sustaining Member of the Society of Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

CCC recently presented a virtual Town Hall to review the latest developments in Transformative Agreements and discuss how innovation is answering the OA challenge.

September 15, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. and New York, NY – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, in coordination with participating publishers, is providing US schools and districts that have adopted the EL Education Language Arts Curriculum the ability to easily obtain permission to use grade level texts for distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many schools across the country have moved to hybrid or distance learning. Since closing their doors in the spring, students lost access to schoolbooks. Those that have purchased classroom copies of the supporting texts for the EL Education Language Arts Curriculum have asked for a way to provide teachers and students with permission to reuse those texts. Without an easy licensing service, it would be inefficient for school districts to purchase, distribute and recover potentially thousands of additional copies of the required works for those students without access to e-book editions. As a consequence, schools are seeking permission to photocopy or scan the texts in the EL Education Language Arts Curriculum to permit easy access and distribution.

CCC, EL Education and participating publishers have combined permissions into a single-source license covering the reuse of all participating texts as part of EL Education’s K-8 Language Arts Curriculum. Participating publishers include Boyds Mills & Kane, a division of Astra Publishing House; Holiday House Publishing, Inc.; Kids Can Press; Prestwick House, Inc. and more.

EL Education offers a full Open Education Resource (OER) curriculum for K-8 classrooms reaching nearly 500,000 students. EL Education’s curriculum is built around authentic, high quality texts that give students the opportunity to dig deeply into academic topics and help them make connections between their academic learning and the real world. Access to texts is fundamental to the success of the curriculum and for student learning.

“The pandemic has highlighted the need for schools and districts to give students flexible access to books and other course content,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President & Managing Director, CCC. “With so many schools offering a hybrid in-school/at-home model or an all-online program, we’re pleased to partner with EL Education for flexible, cost-effective licensing solutions that help ensure students have access to high-quality texts.”

“COVID-19 has increased the need to simplify online access to book content for both students and teachers as we all face a 2020-2021 school year with so many uncertainties,” said Scott Hartl, President and CEO, EL Education. “By collaborating with CCC and leading publishers, we can empower educators to continue the joyful learning that comes with our curriculum and the books that it relies on – regardless of whether students are back in the classroom or learning from home.”

August 20, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces Deseret Book Company, the market-leader in the publishing, distribution and retailing of faith-based books serving members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is enabling the compliant reuse of content in the academic setting through CCC’s Annual Copyright License for Academic Institutions.

CCC enables patrons and staff to more easily access and use copyrighted content, on campus or at home. CCC offers integrated licensing, content and analytics solutions designed to help students, faculty and staff get the information they need, the rights to use it, and the insight to maximize the value of their content purchase.

CCC’s Annual Copyright License has been adopted by many leading faith-based colleges and universities, theological institutions and seminaries, providing a single, multi-use license enabling faculty, researchers and staff to use content in a copyright compliant manner across campus or online with ease. Created in partnership with colleges and universities, the Annual Copyright License addresses the unique copyright challenges faced by today’s academic institutions.

CCC’s Pay-Per-Use Permissions Services, in which Deseret Book also participates, deliver quick and easy single-use rights licensing options for faculty, students and staff at academic institutions and service providers to use content from the world’s leading titles in science, technology, medicine, news, finance and more.

“From course management systems to e-reserves, remote learning technology is changing the way faculty, staff and students use information during the pandemic,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President & Managing Director, CCC. “CCC’s integrated licensing, content and analytics solutions make it easy for members of the academic community to use content in a copyright compliant manner online, in print, in the classroom or at home.”

“Colleges and universities have broad information needs, from enabling staff to conduct research to helping faculty prepare course materials, extending from the classroom to the president’s office,” said Keith Hunter, Sr. Vice President, Deseret Book Company. “By partnering with CCC, we are responding to changing market needs by making our content available in a seamless and copyright compliant way, regardless of the user’s location.”

Since 1866, Deseret Book Company has been the market leader in the publishing, distribution and retailing of faith-based books, music, DVDs, religious art and home décor, and other lifestyle products serving, in particular, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Deseret Book’s purpose is to provide quality products that build faith, strengthen homes and families, ennoble personal virtues, and offer practical advice to religious and non-religious alike.

June 23, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces a partnership with Editage, the flagship brand of Cactus Communications (CACTUS), a technology company accelerating scientific advancement, to offer its Research Promotion Solutions for authors through the growing community of RightsLink® for Scientific Communications publishers.

As scholarly publishers diversify revenue streams due to changing market dynamics, it’s imperative they protect and strengthen relationships with influential and emerging authors. This strategic collaboration between CCC and Editage gives RightsLink publishers the immediate ability to offer high-impact research promotion solutions to authors at the time of manuscript acceptance without incurring additional overhead.

In the increasingly competitive world of scholarly research, publishers seek creative, cost-effective ways to expand the range of services for their authors as a means to build loyalty and ensure a continuous stream of submissions. Publishing in a prestigious journal is important to building an author’s brand, and authors must also find ways to build visibility for their research as funders and institutions look at new ways to assess research impact. With this partnership, an author whose manuscript has been accepted by a RightsLink publisher can order infographics, plain-language summaries, video, and news stories through RightsLink from the science communication experts at Editage in order to support the promotion of the research upon publication.

“An author needs to adopt the mindset that publishing a paper is only the beginning of making one’s research results visible to the world, and that they need to promote their findings to peers, adjacent peers, the public, and policymakers, in order to maximize societal impact,” said Donald Samulack, Head, Global Stakeholder Engagement, CACTUS. “We are excited to partner with CCC to enable RightsLink publishers to empower authors with the opportunity to consider research promotion solutions, along with other publication options through traditional and touch-free workflows at the final stages of the publishing process. All of these elements, although different in character, are equally important to the success of the published paper.”

The emergence of transformative agreements such as Read and Publish and Publish and Read, as well as of Pure Open Access, has changed the face of scholarly publishing. With its industry leading RightsLink for Scientific Communications solution, CCC leverages its extensive experience collecting, managing, and reporting of core Article Processing Charges (APCs) to give publishers new opportunities to grow and manage their businesses. RightsLink is trusted by 30 of the world’s leading publishers as they implement Open Access agreements with over 300 institutions and support thousands of authors from more than 125 countries. In the past year, RightsLink publishers have approved more than 1,500 Open Access and transformative agreement funding requests.

“Plan S and other funder mandates to accelerate Open Access continue to foster meaningful dialogue for change in scholarly publishing,” said Gretchen Gasser-Ellis, Vice President and Managing Director, Publisher Solutions, CCC. “Our partnership with Editage will build on what publishers are doing to create new solutions within the scholarly publishing ecosystem and strengthen their strategic author programs.”

CCC is a trusted intermediary and recognized market leader uniquely positioned to facilitate dialog among key stakeholders in the author, publisher, institution, funding and vendor communities. CCC also encourages engagement across boundaries through an ongoing series of roundtables, panel events, webinars, podcasts and blogs. CCC is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), the International Association of STM Publishers (STM), and a Sustaining Member of the Society of Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

(CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces that RightsLink for Scientific Communications (RLSC), trusted by 30 leading publishers representing 2,400 journals, is managing Open Access (OA) agreements with more than 300 institutions.

RLSC helps publishers manage author transactions and supports a variety of transformative agreements, including Read and Publish, Publish and Read, and Pure OA with a ‘touch-free’ workflow that doesn’t require author involvement. This not only facilitates alignment with mandates such as Plan S, but also improves transparency, reduces friction for the author, and lowers costs for all parties. With support for pre-paid funder and publisher accounts, RightsLink is the only solution that enables Read and Publish agreements between publishers and institutions without requiring author involvement.

“RightsLink provides a seamless experience for key stakeholders pursuing and supporting open access publishing,” said James Baldini, Senior Director, American Chemical Society (ACS) Publications Sales Operations. “Now we can meet a market need to provide our institutional partners with a user friendly and scalable workflow solution in this space.”

RightsLink Network Effect
Because RightsLink is used by so many of the world’s top publishers, CCC is able to bring a broad and advanced set of capabilities to all publishers, funders, institutions and authors using the RightsLink platform.

“The RightsLink network effect drives collaboration, partnership and innovation in the evolving scientific publishing ecosystem,” said Gretchen Gasser-Ellis, Vice President and Managing Director, Publisher Solutions, CCC. “There’s strength in numbers, as evidenced by these milestones. The power of the RightsLink network effect goes beyond publishers and extends to the authors, funders and institutions who trust the solution’s familiar user experience and flexible workflow.”

CCC is a trusted intermediary and recognized market leader uniquely positioned to facilitate dialog among key stakeholders in the author, publisher, institution, funding and vendor communities. CCC also encourages engagement across boundaries through an ongoing series of roundtables, panel events, webinars, podcasts and blogs. CCC is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), the International Association of STM Publishers (STM), and a Sustaining Member of the Society of Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

Transformative Agreements Town Hall
CCC will present a virtual Town Hall on Thursday, 18 June at 10:00 EDT/15:00 BST/16:00 CEST to review the latest developments in Transformative Agreements and foster a discussion on how innovation is answering the Open Access challenge.

Explore the Scientific Publishing Ecosystem

Last year, CCC and Outsell, Inc., the voice of the data, information and analytics economy, hosted an interactive, strategic discussion with senior industry executives on ‘The Future of Science’ and what it means for all stakeholders in London. The program featured senior policy makers, scholarly and society publishers, funders, institutions and researchers focused on the value chain, implicit and explicit reward systems, and what may need to shift to improve scientific research. To guide the discussion, CCC and Outsell collaborated to produce a detailed map of the research ecosystem and an accompanying report highlighting stakeholders, contributions and rewards, and suggesting areas of opportunity. The map does not construct a new, ideal process but rather reflects today’s common language and understanding of the ecosystem from the perspective of each stakeholder.

CCC recently announced its Education Continuity License to enable creative approaches to remote teaching and distance learning made necessary by the pandemic as a result of educators across the U.S. asking questions about using copyrighted content and materials in innovative new ways to support distance learning. In response, CCC coordinated with its community of rightsholders to authorize the use of their materials at no cost by educators as required by the pandemic during this time of emergency. CCC is not delivering educational materials or content to educators; it is offering this new license to authorize U.S. school districts, educators, parents and others to make immediate additional uses of materials that they have previously lawfully acquired.

To accelerate sharing of knowledge and ease online learning, CCC is continually updating its resource page of educational resources open for K-12 and higher education during the COVID-19 crisis. CCC recognizes publishing and other information organizations for contributing to the common good by providing access to relevant COVID-19 content and created this living list to amplify the availability of open-to-read material. CCC has also gathered data visualizations, dashboards, and datasets related to COVID-19. Access those resources here.

March 24, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces its Education Continuity License to enable creative approaches to remote teaching and distance learning made necessary by the pandemic.

Over the past several days, educators across the U.S. have contacted CCC with questions about using copyrighted content and materials in innovative new ways to support distance learning. In response, CCC is coordinating with its community of rightsholders to authorize the use of their materials at no cost by educators as required by the pandemic during this time of emergency. CCC is not delivering educational materials or content to educators; it offers this new license to authorize U.S. school districts, educators, parents and others to make immediate additional uses of materials that they have previously lawfully acquired.

The authorization will run through mid-summer 2020, at which time CCC will work with rightsholders to assess whether an extension may be necessary. CCC will not collect fees from any party and will administer this service for no cost. CCC has posted a form on its website so that educators can look up participating publishers and record their use of lawfully acquired copyrighted materials. In just a few days, more than 40 publishers have agreed to grant these rights at no cost through this license.

As schools and educators quickly shift from in-classroom to in-home teaching, CCC is also providing regularly updated learn-at-home resources links on its homepage from a variety of educational publishers and content providers to help and support teachers and children.

“I’m incredibly impressed by the innovation and creativity demonstrated by teachers, educators, and publishers during this time of crisis,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC. “This license provides an added measure of support requested by talented education professionals, and we are happy to contribute in this crisis by bringing these creative licenses, offered by a growing number of publishers, to educators who need them most.”
